Having a problem with a neighbor’s property? 

  1. Talk to your neighbor and try to get the issue resolved
  2. Report a violation to Building and Safety:  https://ladbs.org/reportviolations
  3. Check back on the Building and Safety site to check the status of the violation - typically you're going to want to see "Order to Comply" which means the inspector has ordered the property owner to fix the problem
  4. Contact the CD7 council office if the violation has not been resolved, they can help follow up http://www.monicarodriguez.org/up
  5. If none of this works after several weeks, please come to the Land Use Committee meeting, and we can look into the situation and see if a letter from the Neighborhood Council to the city is warranted to help resolve the situation.
